Athlete of the Week: Aaron Banks

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – This week’s Forum Credit Union Athlete of the Week features an athlete who not only takes care of business on the court, but also off of it as well.

Brebeuf Senior Forward, Aaron Banks was a big reason Todd Howard’s squad had so much success in his first season as the Braves head coach.

Banks averaged over 10 points per game in his senior season.

Banks not only plays on the basketball team but he is also the starting quarterback on the football team and a presidential ambassador.

And with all that going on, Banks also takes his studies very seriously. He wants to be a biomedical engineer; and that’s really driving his college choices which range from Purdue to the Ivy leagues.

“I like school. I like the opportunity to learn. I look at each day as a day to expand my mind.” Banks said, “I like the feeling of knowing things and being smart and intelligent and knowing what I’m talking about.” said Banks.

Banks plans on playing football where ever he may land in the fall.
